snack time

With 12 children you have to be organized to survive.


With 12 growing children you have to have snacks.


With 12 children sometimes the snacks disappear before some children get a chance to have their share.


From those circumstances we came up with this concept.


They get their own box and enough snacks to last a couple of weeks.  They get one snack a day (ideally) but if they run out before the allotted time is up - oh well.  They just have to do without until snack refill time. 


So far it has worked out.  They even came up with a snack swap since they do have their own preferences and tastes.  So far, so good.


Until next time...

Oh that is such a good idea! I'll have to remember that for when mine get a little older. I like that it not only takes pressure off of you to constantly resupply snacks, but also teaches them to be stewards of what they have. That'll come in handy later on when they need to make a paycheck last several weeks ;)
